  1. Hi all, I KNOW...we had this propably a thousand times already. But it really frustates me. I've been flying FSX/FS9 for almost 15 years now and I experienced a million different ways to make the Flight simulator crash (Blue Screen, OOM, CTD etc.). Last year at this time I even was so frustated I quit playing Flight Simulator and sweared to myself to wait until the new MSFS will be released. That's what I did. For that I even bought myself a new PC, because it just wouldn't be possible to play on my old one. Graphics -> WOW! Amazing! How do they do that? 😵 Performance -> WOW! Amazing! I cannot complain at all (40+ FPS on highest display settings) VFR flying -> WOW! Amazing! So nice 😃 IFR flying -> WHAT THE HELL? Even with purchasing the Premium Deluxe Ultimate Super Duper Version..WHAT THE HECK! I'm gonna wait till PMDG or QW realeases their aircraft for this flight sim! So I decided going back to good old FSX for finally flying some nice IFR legs again. What could possibly go wrong with my new PC specs? 🤪 Now the problem itself: Starting a flight on PMDG 777-200LR at EDDF (Mega Airport Frankfurt V2), activating AS Next Gen for FSX:SE and having GSX installed according to ProcessExplorer my VAS is already load up to 3.5-3.7GB (so like 92%) --> Are You kidding me? Is that normal? Even if I start a Trike flight on a non scenery airport without having AS Next activated the VAS is loaded by 2.4GB Can someone please explain? To be honest..I expected a lot more! My FSX even closed down with a OOM after reaching the gate now 2 times already. I'm definetly not a PC specialist and almost have no Idea about Hardware stuff. But this? Seriously? My PC specs: Processor: Intel i7-10700KF RAM: 64GB GPU: ZOTAC GAMING GeForce RTX 3090 Trinity Win10 Pro FSX:SE is installed on Drive D\ -> SSD 1TB FSUIPC 4.976 The LON thingy in FSX.cfg is still unchanged at 4.5000 Would I have the same problems with P3D (I just thought about changing SIM if it helps)
  2. My friends, I think most people running P3D are aware that many in our community suffer from Out of Memory errors (despite using the recommended methods to avoid them) and there are also those who like me don't have this problem. While reading a particular post this evening, I wondered if DX11 doesn't have some residual mirror allocation going on, or if there might otherwise be some relationship between OOMs and those with video cards that contain higher amounts or VRAM. In other words, some type of relationship which might result in someone with a video card having 4GB, 6GB, 8GB, etc., with all things being equal, be more prone to suffering an OOM than someone with 1GB or 2GB VRAM. For the record, I'm aware of the differences between DX9 and DX11, so we don't need to have this conversation. I'm hoping that people suffering from OOMs will consider providing some of their system specs in order to help track the source of comparative OOMs (all things being equal between two systems, one system is prone to OOMs while the other is not). This is only for OOMs under Prepar3d (P3D). Terms Used: RAM Physical Memory on the Motherboard VRAM Physical Memory on the Graphics Card VAS Virtual Address Space, basically the specific space set devoted to an application (such as P3D). With a 64bit operating system, the size of allocated VAS can be up to 4GB for each 32bit application. DATA COLLECTION 1. Version of Prepar3d? 2. Processor Type (example: i7 4770K) Overclocked? Turbo Mode Setting)? 3. GPU *Please create separate entry for each video card. Manufacturer (example: Gigabyte) Model Number (example: GTX980) Overclocked? Amount of VRAM? 4. Amount of RAM? 5. Number of monitors in use (may or may not display P3D? 6. Number of monitors on which P3D is displayed on? 7. Did you have more than two airport sceneries enabled during the OOM(s)? Many thanks for your help.
  3. Hi, it would be really helpful if anyone could help me I fly 90% of the time in the PMDG 777 and I always get an OOM error on final My specs: Inter® Core2 Duo CPU E7500 @2.93GHz 2.94 GHz RAM: 4.00 GB (3.00 GB usable) 32 bit operating system. I know its not suitable for gaming I never get OOM when using default airports but when I use da freeware airports the VAS reduces rapidly during touchdown and I get an OOM error. ( I fly in VATSIM) If anyone of you could fix this error then I would be more happier than my wedding day Its really frustrating when one day I was about to land after a 9 hour flight from Delhi to Heathrow and then an OOM error occured just after touchdown... I only wanna use the freeware airports to get the updated taxiways and gates as provided in the charts. Not the payware ones.... I hope anyone could tell me a solution for me
  4. Can anyone help with this as I am completely flumoxed! Since moving to FSX-SE, following a brand new install, and an upgrade to i7 6700 not OC. With 16Gb RAM 3200Mhz and a GTX 770 4gb, I have had numerous OOMs, which I never had with FSX. Now today, i loaded the A2A 182 at Orbx Harvey Field in PNW. Autogen Dense, LOD at 6.5 all the usual things turned down, nothing different from previous flights. Within 30 seconds of climbing into the cockpit, the dinging bell started to suggest an OOM. When I looked at Process Explorer it was showing just shy of 2,7Gb. Very odd. Anyway, I closed everything down and fired up the sim again. This time I reduced LOD to 6. Ah I thought, that must be the problem, although I am still perplexed as to why process explorer was showing less that 2.8 memory usage. I continued my flight west towards Sequim valley airport, about 50 miles away. When I got close to landing, the bell started to ding again and I got those typical graphical spikes climbing out of the ground. Just prior to seeing the sim crash, I switched from fullscreen into windowed to see process explorer showing the same memory usage as before, except maybe 2.9 or so. What on earth has gone on here? Can anyone offer some help with this, as it seems to be happening a lot. Cheers.
  5. Hello, You might remember a tool i wrote a long time ago whose objective was to monitor VAS usage during a simulator session (FSX/P3D). The original FSMem, although featuring memory usage warnings and selectable memory thresholds for these warnings, lacked one feature that i consider the most important: - Memory logging. With this in mind and once i had a couple of days free, i coded a new application from scratch to do just that. FSMem2 now displays a graphic of either used or free memory, constantly displays free and available memory and, most importantly, logs and exports memory usage data. You can then use the logs to better understand when, how, why your memory is used by the simulators. Hopefully this isn't going to be required for long with the apparent proximity of x64 versions of P3D, but for now it might still be useful. README INCLUDED IN THE ARCHIVE DOWNLOAD HERE Here's a small screenshot sample, hope you find this too useful somehow.
  6. Hi Everyone, I've been immersing myself in the forums, here and elsewhere, to research the VAS/memory management problem that most of us who have 3.4 are struggling with. I'm convinced that it's a memory management problem. In any case, I'm curious to find out what the last version was that did NOT have these VAS problems. Maybe I can ask LM to let me roll it back since I started with 3.4 and can't get earlier versions. My VAS problems are pretty much identical to what everyone's been talking about recently. I'm still in the process of tweaking things, but maybe it will be worthwhile to see if an older version is a better option for decent performance/eye-candy until this issue gets addressed. I can hold my own for the most part with out going near OOM unless I'm in the 777 coming into JFK, and next worst airports are at LAXv2 and DFW. I don't have my sliders to the right, except for those run by the GPU, and am using low res textures. Traffic rarely above 10% unless I'm going into a smaller airport and I'll kick it up a little. Frames hover in the low 20s at most addon airports in the Airbus and 737, and of course, performance is spectacular in default ac. The CS 777 is a performance hog, knocking me down to 12-15fps in most cases at any airport, under any condition. Vectors are limited to primary and secondary roads and my cloud textures are also low. I guess what I'm getting at is I understand the VAS problem, and am learning how to manage settings in order to get the most performance vs graphics. But, after 2 weeks of constant tweaking, researching and testing, version 3.4 just doesn't give back VAS once it takes it away. The only way I can regenerate the memory is to save the flight, make it default, and restart P3D. Fortunately because of the SSD, the process only takes about 1-2 minutes. However, I'm wondering if a previous version would perform better, and if so, which one should I ask for? Thanks, John I7-6700k @4.4-4.6ghz (don't know which is more stable yet) 16gb 2100 DDR4 GTX1060 4gb (little better than the 960, but not by much- may return it) SSD for P3D and all addons ORBX Vector, HD Airports, Global, North America AS16 PMDG ngx Aerosoft Airbus Captain Sim 777 (unflyable), will upgrade to PMDG once I can get performance up Various popular FSDT, Flightbeam, Taxi2gate and Fly Tampa for USA and CYYZ, and Aerosoft (EGLL) airports MT6 (had UT2 migrated fine, but took a big performance hit and AI liveries too much to manage and update.
  7. Twice in a row and at about the same point, I am getting an out of memory error not long after takeoff when flying Tutorial 1 for the NGX. It has never occurred anywhere else yet, and in fact, after it happened last night I flew a manual flight for about 2 hours without an issue? I'm in Prepar3d V3.4. Any ideas would be appreciated!

  8. Hello captains, I don't know if here is the right place to put this but I think that this is an interesting tool. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B6atkUYYWmkteHhkaG5aUkVpcnc/edit?usp=sharing This is a software that I wrote to myself but I think that it can be helpful to many people. This software monitors your FSX VAS. It's very intuitive. Just double click on setup to install. After the installation, double click the FSX VAS Monitor icon. If the FSX is already started, FSX VAS Monitor should automatically start to read the FSUIPC offset 024C. If the FSX was started after the FSX VAS Monitor, click the Connect Button and it will start monitoring. there are only 4 adjusts to set, the minimum quantity of memory avaliable before trigger the alarm (in MB), if the alarm will run with the red text blinking and a ding sound, and if the FSX VAS Monitor should start directly on system tray. System Requeriments: FSX (obviously) with FSUIPC installed. It works with WideFS too (Ideal to people that use two or more computers). This software is free to distribute. have a good flights...

  9. Hello all, I haven't experienced oom for a long while since I dicovered the workaround to significantly reduce the risk of OOM (not to select STAR in preflight stage but before descent, because the VAS may continuously accumulate en-route if the STAR has a certain kind of missed approach precedure), but everything got ruined when I flew my PMDG 777 into CYYZ. I am just curious to know if there is someone who has successfully fly a PMDG 777 into Flytampa Toronto CYYZ. Even though I had a flight from Flightbeam KSFO HD to FSDT KLAX, I didn't experience OOM. My settings are definitely not agressive, but moderate. I have no idea why I still got OOM... I have tested the sceneries by Process Explorer, and noticed that 3.1 to 3.5GB VAS has been used just after I started the flight at gate and pan around the cockpit...I have FTX Global with Vector installed. You may say it consumes VAS so much and should be the cause of the OOM, but I have successfully made flights without OOM with the same settings and addons installed for almost a year. Therefore I think there should be some other reasons... In addition, although I have turned "Transparent Glass and Interiors" option ON, I still can't see through the glass of terminals. Does anyone here having any idea? Here are some crucial parameters in fsx.cfg LOD_RADIUS=4.5 TEXTURE_MAX_LOAD=4096 IMAGE_COMPLEXITY=4 AUTOGEN_DENSITY=3 Here are my settings in Flytampa Configurator: 3D Grass...OFF 3D Grass (ramp)...OFF 3D People...OFF Static Vehicles...OFF Animated Cars...OFF Animated Apron Traffic...OFF Transparent Glass and Interiors...ON (all options in "effect" section)...ON Animated Traffic Lights...ON Anson Cheung
  10. Hello All, First off the plane is amazing! It does what it is supposed to do if you know how to fly it!! My question is performance related. I have flown the cojones off this thing since she was released but i have noticed one issue with it and i was wondering if you all could potentially shed some light on the situation! Flight #1 N581UP Paint PHNL(FSDT)-KONT(Addon) Left PHNL with no issue, about 3 hours into the flight over the ocean well short of landfall i noticed my VAS was creeping up in the high 80s low 90s OVER WATER! Eventually leading to the Audible ding in the simulator that told me it was to late to save it...Subsequently i save the flight and restarted the PC with AutoSave. I was then able to land without issue after re-loading the flight! Flight #4 N578UP Paint KSDF(BluePrint) -PANC(Aerosoft) SAME RESULT....VAS crept up into the mid 90s this time over Northern Canada...restarted and continued the flight from AutoSave...Upon landing in PANC when i started to pull into parking i was getting the audible OOM ding...I was able to shut down and submit my flight before the sim crashed! Flight #5 N581UP Paint PANC(Aerosoft)-KONT(Addon) Left PANC at about 78%...now as i sit here typing this i am at FL350 over the ocean west of Vancouver with no land in sight and over the course of 2 Hrs and 1 Minute from takeoff the VAS has crept all the way up to 89%-90% 3607MB Could this have been due to a bad install .exe? For reference in the 777 i only see 68%-72% sitting on the ground at PANC Equipment: i7 6700K clocked to 4.5, 16GBDDR4 RAM, Nvidia GTX970, 500GB Samsung SSD P3d.cfg and simmed have been expertly tuned as well for optimum performance. Sadly all tests are pointing back to the plane possibly being the issue! Thanks for the assistance!! Rich M.
  11. Hi, After a series of OOMs I have reverted back to the 376.33 driver for my GTX 1080. NVidia recently released a second hot fix driver, 378.77, has anyone had any time to test it out? Best, Chike
  12. Hi, I'm a week into P3D, I've been on FSX for 2 years. I bought a beefed up machine (6700k, gtx 1080 etc) with the intention of bringing my love of FSX to P3D. After reinstalling everything from my AI traffic (WoAi), PMDG 777, to Orbx Global and Vector and about 50+ Airports, I have yet to complete a long haul, 8hr plus in my case, something I was so used to in FSX. For those with a similar configuration and experience in P3D, what should I be doing differently? An example of my last long-haul failure: Imagine Sim's WSSS to FlyTampa EHAM with PMDG 777, about a 13-hour flight (A flight I somehow pulled off in FSX). I took off with 27% VAS remaining, about 3 Hours into the flight VAS had jumped to 14% remaining, 7.5 hours in over Turkmenistan at the break of dawn I get an OOM error and eventual CTD. Any help would be really appreciated. Best, Leon
